You recently met the manager of a new company that started in your city. After the meeting, the manager wrote you a letter offering a job at this company. However, you cannot accept the job offer.

Write to the manager and say:

  • How you feel about the job offer
  • Why you can’t accept it
  • Provide a reference to your friend who might be interested

Write at least 150 words.

Dear Mr. Scott,

I hope this letter finds you well. I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for extending the job offer to me at your newly established company. I truly appreciate your confidence in my abilities and the opportunity you presented.

After careful consideration and evaluation of my current circumstances, I regretfully inform you that I am unable to accept the job offer at this time. Although I am genuinely excited about the prospects of working with your company and the potential for growth it offers, unforeseen personal commitments have arisen that necessitate my full attention and dedication for the foreseeable future.

However, I have a highly skilled and capable friend, Emily Harris, who I believe would be an excellent fit for the position. She possesses the necessary expertise and experience in hospitality and has expressed keen interest in exploring new opportunities. I would highly recommend considering her for the role, as I believe their qualifications align well with the requirements of the position.

If it is acceptable to you, I would be happy to provide Emily Harris’ contact details and facilitate an introduction between the two of you.

Once again, I genuinely appreciate the job offer and your understanding regarding my decision. I wish you and your new company great success in all your future endeavors.

Warm regards,

Ryan Smith
